DECEMBER 2020

As we head towards the end of term, we have made the decision to try to alleviate the workload for school staff by offering a range of independent work here for anyone in the class needing to self-isolate. Obviously, should our bubble close then we will return to providing daily video inputs and tasks for you but trying to do this and teach the majority of the class in school has proven extremely time-consuming. Below you will find an explanation of the work available here and the resources to download.  If you have any problems, please email me on stephaniet@eastmeonprimary.co.uk.  Keep any work you have done to bring back to school with you and we can stick it into your books. We can't wait to see you back at school soon!!

 

Literacy - try to do at least 1 page everyday.

  •  Year 1 or Year 2 Christmas English Activity booklet
  • Year 1 or Year 2 phonics mosaic activity
  • Christmas Word fun (both yeargroups)
  • You could also practice your common exception words and resources for these can be found in previous weeks

 

Maths - try to do at least 1 page every day 

  • Year 1 or Year 2 Christmas themed addition and subtraction work book 
  • 2 times table and 10 time table workbook (Y1 - just look at  2x table)

 

Topic - At school we will be focusing on our Christmas Play so please practice any lines you have. If you are unlikely to return to school before the last week, then get your grownup to film you saying your line and send it to Mrs Perkins (stephaniet@eastmeonprimary.co.uk) so she can get you into the final 'movie'  Some of the songs are also available in the video resource centre (words can be found in the week 4 resources) and you could record yourself singing along to those too!

The Great Fire of East Meon Primary!!!

Still image for this video
There was great excitement today as the Adventurers finally got to enjoy their own Great Fire of London when we ignited our model houses to observe how quickly the fire could spread.
Last half term we practised dance movements that represented fire. We flickered like a flame, created fire sparks with our hands and arms, fireballs whilst travelling and some of us even added gunpowder explosions for the houses that were destroyed in order to try and stop the fire spreading. Mrs Newman was the wind 'blowing' the flames in our direction until the fire slowly spread across the whole of London! (Our class) This week we completed our dance and added red, orange and yellow tissue paper for our flames.

Great Fire of London dance

Our Stop Go Animations

Still image for this video

Adventurers classroom became a temporary film studio today as the children had a go at creating their own stop go animations based on the Great Fire of London. Check out our class movie of the edited highlights above!!

There was much excitement today as the last of the Year 2's lockdown learning gems were finally counted out and added to the jars! Year 1's will be adding theirs next week!

October 14th 2020

This week, Adventurers have been thinking about how London has changed since the time of the Great Fire. They discussed how people from other countries have travelled to live in our country. They enacted this on the playground by holding flags to represent different countries and they then travelled to join the children in the middle to create a wonderful mixture of cultures and backgrounds.

On Thursday 8th October the Adventurers each formed their own individual Harvest loaves. We thought about the reasons the loaves were shaped as a wheatsheaf whilst we moulded them. The Adventurers were able to describe that the Harvest loaf is shaped as a wheatsheaf to thank God for the food he has provided in our world and also to thank Farmers for the Harvest. We discussed the journey of bread from the field to our shops and really enjoyed talking about our favourite types of bread and their fillings! Yum!

Our Harvest loaves were a messy job but we worked hard to separate our dough into 10 equal sized balls, then roll the balls into sausages before twisting some around each other to make it look like a wheatsheaf. Well done Adventurers! 

On Tuesday 29th September, Adventurers walked through East Meon, looking for evidence of Tudor architecture. They enjoyed spotting the features that they would have seen on buildings in London during the Great Fire. We then went back to school and the children sketched their own versions of Tudor houses, which we will use as a basis for our sculpture work later in the week. Ask your child if they can point out the Tudor house in the village on their way home!
